Premio Archittectura Toscana
Design culture in Tuscany
With over 150 participants, 20 works selected, and five winners, the first edition of PAT, Premio Architettura Toscana, was held in July to spread design culture. It was organised by the Consiglio Regionale Toscana, Ordine degli Architetti di Firenze e Pisa, Federazione degli Architetti della Toscana, Fondazione degli Architetti di Firenze and ANCE Toscana. Aimed at works realised in Tuscany in the past five years, it’s divided into five categories: “first work” (won by the Piazza dell’immaginario by Studio Ecol, above left); “new construction” (Cantina Bulgari by Alvisi Kirimoto + Partners, above right); “installation or interiors” (Museo delle Statue Stele Lunigianesi by Canali Associati); and “public space, landscape, renewal” (urban requalification of Piazza dei Tre Re by Chiara Fanigliulo).
